SALA Exhibition Official Opening - Billy Oakley

Tuesday 2nd August 2016, 6:45pm (work on display for all of August)

This year we're very excited to be hosting the very talented young local artist Billy Oakley. 

His works represent "the introspection of a 20 year old oil based impressionist painter. From portraits to landscapes they're stylistically vehement paintings, bold colour and heavy handed strokes."

Please feel free to pop along for the official opening on the 2nd of August to meet the artist himself. Refreshments will be available.

Billy's work will be on display in the foyer of the Capri Theatre from the 20th of July through to the end of August as part of the SALA exhibition. There will be many artists displaying their works in the various venues along Goodwood Road so you can spend some time mooching along the street and soaking up the atmosphere.



Nostalgia Night - Arsenic and Old Lace

Friday 5th August 2016, 7:00pm

What's more nostalgic than an old black and white Cary Grant movie? Seeing it at the Capri of course, with an old school program including cartoons, shorts, news reels and the mighty WurliTzer organ!

Arsenic and Old Lace is a frenzied, hilarious, madcap black comedy from celebrated director Frank Capra. The slapstick film, with murderous aunts compassionately serving up elderberry wine laced with arsenic to elderly gentlemen - with their crazy nephew assisting by burying the unfortunate victims. It frequently features as one of the top comedies of the 40s. And what better year to celebrate the 40s than our 75th anniversary year! Cary Grant et al are on sparkling form in this classic darkly twisted and macabre comedy.

As both brothers are pulled apart by different choices, one thing is clear – something sinister is going on! As people go missing the brothers learn secrets that will change their lives forever – but what is out there? A myth? A hoax? Or could it be… real?

'Shine' 20th Anniversary Screening + Q&A with Scott Hicks & Jan Sardi

SHINE, one of the most celebrated and successful films in Australian cinema history, will have a special screening at the Capri on Friday August 19 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its Australian release.  Director Scott Hicks and screenwriter Jan Sardi will join us for a Q&A following the screening.  

SHINE is the true story of pianist David Helfgott, his turbulent relationship with his father, his breakdown and eventual redemption through the love of his wife, Gillian.

SHINE swept the pool of local awards in 1996, winning nine AFI Awards. The following year SHINE became an international phenomenon scoring seven Oscar® nominations, five Golden Globe nominations and nine BAFTA nominations amongst many other international awards. After Geoffrey Rush was awarded an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA for Best Actor, his acting career was completely transformed.
